SOURCE: hand brake and boot catch

if you open your boot at the bottom in the middle of boot and look for excess wearing on the catch as this has to be cvlosed for all of the central locking system to be working. if this is not the case and there are no visdible scratches on the actual pin then you will find it to be a computer fault and would recommend you go to dealer.

My passat boot lock does the same because someone forced the lock one night, i replaced the lock barrel but from time to time the white plastic acctuator or pump if you want to call it that jams in the open position and needs a small tap with the boot lining removed to free it up.A replacement is only £23(U.K pounds) or just spay a little lubricant in the mechanism to free up the mostly dry plastic parts.

BOOT OPEN but not open warning light on dashboard say this with red warning light

The sensor is located and probably built into the boot latch. The sensor is good because the light goes off if you close it slowly. the latch is just worn out with that particular part. Replace the latch. It is not hard to replace if you have a few hand tools.

Why is brake fluid warning light on but there is brake fluid

From Fiat LOW Brake Fluid / Parking Brake Either the exclamation mark symbol or the 'BRAKE' dashboard symbol may be used on various models of the Fiat 500. Light should illuminate until engine has started. If light remains on, it signifies the parking / hand brake is on, or that there is insufficient brake fluid in the reservoir. If light illuminates and the handbrake is not applied, braking may become defective. Seek assistance from a Fiat technician immediately.

Check to make sure your parking/hand brake is fully released, sometimes the spring that pushes back on the mechanism isn't strong enough, doesn't push back all the way, and the brake indication switch isn't engaged.
The other possibilities are that the float in the master brake cylinder is stuck (if it has one), or the level sensor has failed.

Ford explorer dashboard warning lights

The door ajar lamp is illuminated because one of the door latches is hanging up. Have some open and shut each door repeatedly until you find the door that is the problem. Liberally spray a WD40 type of spray around the latch mechanism on the door side. Repeat this on all doors.
I do not think all the problems are related, but this will fix the door ajar problem.

Fiat stilo boot open sensor

You may have broken it or bent or wire connector is off, you will need to locate the latch and may need to remove it and see if the switch is bent or connector is off, sometimes it gets bent or broken for you trying to open the hood (boot) with screwdriver.
